Great experiemental sounds
Sound Quality: 4 of 5 stars. Soundboard recording, sounds great with all of the looping and instruments, they all come in nice. only drag is the voice levels of the guitarist (not matt) aren't that high, so when he sings it's hard to hear him.
Show Quality: 4 of 5 stars. A fun experimental show. This was the first time I had seen them play and my socks were blown off... I've been a fan of annie's for years but I guess this little experiment was put together with her and her brother matt and his 'red west' band mate while they aren't touring. Fun stuff and a unique sound of looping, live sampling, toy instruments, and just overall good stuff!
Moody, sparse, provocative. Fantastic vocalist, great musicians.
The intimacy of the venue is conveyed in a fine recording. Somehow reminds me of a music-box. I haven't checked out Anne's solo stuff but this is well worth the download. Watching the "Kill Bill" DVD with this show on the headphones makes for a hell of a grey winter's NYC Sunday afternoon.
